Carrots with Miso Glaze
This simple miso carrot dish is super straightforward and delectable! The saltiness of miso pairs perfectly with the natural sweetness of carrots in this delectable side dish that the entire family will adore. Enjoy it at dinner time as part of an enjoyable and fulfilling family dinner experience!
Preheat the oven to 400 F and combine softened butter and miso paste in a bowl, before placing carrots in a frying pan over medium heat and letting them become tender before draining and transferring to a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the carrots, add salt as needed, then toss to evenly coat. Finally add your miso butter mixture for even coverage of carrots!
Send the pan to the oven, and roast carrots until fork-tender, slightly crisp on the edges, and coated in miso butter sauce. Garnish with scallions before serving this delicious recipe that serves 8 to 10 guests. Miso is typically vegan- and vegetarian-friendly as its primary ingredients include soy beans, rice or barley and salt; however it should always be produced in an establishment which also processes non-vegan ingredients.
Carrots with Pearl Barley and Snow Pea Sprouts
Carrots add sweet sweetness and their vibrant hue is full of antioxidants such as potassium, vitamin C and manganese – not to mention anti-inflammatory properties that make this delicious purple carrot recipe perfect for salads! We combined pearl barley, snow pea sprouts and toasted pepitas for this delightful feast for an incredible taste sensation!
White miso paste marinade adds umami notes while the sweetness from roasted carrots adds sweetness. It is easy to prepare this salad, with only two cooking components required: boiling pearl barley and roasting carrots. If pearl barley cannot be found, freekeh or bulgur wheat may work instead, while snow pea sprouts could be replaced with broccoli or microgreens if available.
This delicious meal option makes the ideal selection for any event or dinner party menu, and especially appeals to vegetarians or vegans at your table.

Place carrots, garlic cloves and thyme on sheet pan; season with additional salt as needed. Roast until vegetables are tender and browned (25-30 minutes).
